Among the major annual attractions at Norwalk Raceway Park is the long-running "Night Under Fire." This celebration of drag racing pyromania routinely features a collection of jet cars, wheelstanders, nitro-burning dragsters, and/or Funny Cars, a sprinkling of historic and nostalgic racecars, a Quick-16 eliminator run, and a gala fireworks display. This year is Norwalk's 40th anniversary of operation, and NUF featured the largest field of nitro-cars yet to appear. Star attraction John Force unveiled a specially commissioned paint scheme on his FC commemorating the event. 

Fan turnout was a record...not just for NRP but also for any single-day drag racing event in Ohio history. The S.R.O. crowd of over 40,000 was not disappointed! Event highlights include Whit Bazemore defeating archrival John Force in the first round, several sub-5 second runs with Dean Skuza setting low ET of the event at 4.92, and Tony Pedregon emerging as overall "champion" of the day via his back-to-back round wins.
